[Ferro-Alloys.com]The United Kingdom’s Trade Remedies Authority has announced the opening of an anti-dumping investigation into aluminium extrusions originating in China. The investigation will cover aluminium bars, rods, profiles, tubes and pipes that entered the UK market in the period under investigation. Should the investigation conclude that aluminium extrusions from China have indeed been sold in the UK market at prices so low that they can be considered dumping and causing injury to domestic producers, the UK authorities will be able to impose anti-dumping duties to re-establish a level playing field. The investigation is expected to be concluded in the next 12 months.
TRA will now entreat for information from all interested parties to establish whether aluminium extrusions have been dumped in the UK, whether that has dented the domestic industry and whether it would be in the UK’s interests for measures to be put in place to mitigate that harm.
In February 2020, the European Commission opened an investigation into aluminium extrusions imported from China to the European Union, resulting in definitive duties of 21.2%-32.1% on March 31, 2021. However, following the complete withdrawal of the UK from the EU January 1, 2021, the UK market ceased to be covered by EU trade defense measures. A new complaint has been made to the UK authorities, whose Trade Remedies Authority will carry out the investigation.
The materials being investigated in this case are rolled, drawn, extruded, forged or cast aluminium extrusions exported from the People’s Republic of China, that are in the form of bars, rods, profiles, tubes and pipes.
